Rock n Roll is heading to Doncaster when the West End sell out sensation Dreamboats and Petticoats comes to town.

The musical, featuring some of the greatest hit songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era, will take over the Dome, Doncaster for a week in September (10–15).

In 1961 emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue. But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons.

Michael Hart, Chief Executive of Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust who manage the Doncaster Dome, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming this smash hit musical to Doncaster.

“We are sure that it will attract rock and roll fans from across the region and that fact that is it is taking place during St Leger week means that visitors to the town can extend their stay and enjoy more of what the town has to offer.

“The Dome has put Doncaster firmly on the map for touring musicals following the success of Annie and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”

Featuring classic tracks from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, and many more, including Let’s Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, Let It Be Me, Great Pretender, C’mon Everybody and Let’s Twist Again, Dreamboats and Petticoats takes audiences back to music’s golden era!
